Fremont CA – June 14, 2012 -- ß-Amyloid (1-40) together with ß-Amyloid (1-42) are two major C-terminal variants of the Aß protein constituting the majority of Aßs, with Ab (1-42) being more neurotoxic. These undergo post-secretory aggregation and deposition in the Alzheimer’s diseased brain.1-5

AnaSpec, EGT Group is pleased to be a provider of a large collection of ß-Amyloid (1-40) peptides:

• Biotin labeled sequences – N or C terminally labeled, with or without linker

• Dye labeled sequences – HiLyte Fluor™ or classic dye labeled

• ClearPoint™ heavy-isotope labeled sequences

• Shorter sequences that end on the 40th amino acid and analog

• HFIP treated ß-Amyloid (1-40)
